I want to be a strata manager when I grow up

5 Aug 2013

School leavers who haven’t quite made up their minds about their future careers are being encouraged by PICA Group companies, market leaders in strata and community title management in Australia, to consider a career as a strata manager.

Group CEO Greg Haywood said strata management was not really considered a career option by school leavers or people considering a career change. “We’d like one day to hear people say I wanted to be a strata manager when I grew up and here I am. The role involves such a variety of day-to-day tasks that it’s impossible to suffer from ‘Groundhog Day’,” he said.

“School leavers who have had some experience with customer service by working in hospitality or retail while still at school are ideal candidates for a career in strata as usually they already have customer service and people skills.”

The strata industry is always looking for new and enthusiastic people to train as strata managers and can offer a career path depending on the goals of the individual.


“Some may want to work for a company and can do very well, while others may eventually want to start their own business. The sector is such that it is possible to do either and be very successful,” Mr Haywood explained.

Recently new training courses, including a Diploma in Management (Strata), Diploma in Management (Finance), and Diploma in Management (Business) were offered by PICA Group to help staff advance their careers. Workplace surveys of employees continually show that education and career pathways are factors in keeping employees engaged.

“The new Diploma in Management (Strata) course developed by our People & Culture department headed up by Michelle Cummins, General Manager, was very successful and we’d like to see this course offered more broadly – so watch this space,” Mr Haywood said.

“PICA also offers strata certification courses for staff such as a Certificate IV in Customer Service and one in Business Administration. Managers and support staff are encouraged to undertake further education and training and we are happy to provide access for them.”

In NSW the minimum qualifications required to be a strata manager are those that have completed a Certificate of Registration and registration with the NSW Office of Fair Trading. Strata managers are also required to complete continuing professional development training annually.


Certificate of Registration courses are offered by Strata Community Australia (NSW).

同意好康兄所說 貪腐瀆職是很有可能的 但現時還沒有證據 所以很難說 執法不嚴 我倒不大同意 衛生部或質檢總局跟著會如何執法 刑事起訴 撤除免檢資格或禁售等等 還有待觀察 現在首先碰到的問題其實不是執法不嚴 而是延遲執法 早該回收的拖到現在才回收 當然 好康兄可能覺得我在咬文嚼字 因為廣義而言 延遲執法也是執法不嚴的一種 但我想強調的其實是普通法入面一個概念 就是 "justice delayed is jitusce denied" 內地雖不是行普通法 但我覺得有關官員如果能理解這個概念的話 便不會搞到如斯田地了

De Amerikaanse prijs is incl. Een 2 jarig contract! Niet te vergelijken met de Nederlandse pr#30en&i82jz; De prijs van een los toestel in de US is gelijk aan de Nederlandse prijs, waarbij het €-teken is vervangen door een $. Hou er rekening mee dat de prijzen in de US ook nog zonder BTW (VAT) zijn. Die verschillen namelijk per staat.Even on topic:Ik vind dat de iPhone nu eindelijk de specificaties heeft zoals hij hoort te hebben!
